14:15h Talk: PKIs for Norwegian Passports and National Id Cards

15:00h Discussion

SPEAKER: Tage Stabell-Kulø (Unibridge)

ABSTRACT: The public information stored in the chip of Norwegian passports and National ID cards is digitally signed by Norwegian authorities. The public key is self-signed key which is also part of a global PKI (Public-Key Infrastructure). The confidential information store on the chip, which includes fingerprints, is protected bu keys managed under another PKI. Furthermore, the cryptographic protocols used in the communication between the chip and the terminal reader are based on the use of temporary ephemeral public keys.

This talk describes the two PKIs and gives a brief introduction to temporary asymmetrical keys.

SPEAKER BIO: Dr. Tage Stabell-Kulo has since 1992 been interested in the use of public keys, their potential, and their limitations. He holds a Cand.Scient. degree in distributed systems from the University of Tromsø, and Doctoral degree from the University of Twente, Netherlands. His PGP key (71FBD469) is from June 1994.
